Manchester United have suffered a blow in signing Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal. The player has revealed that he is happy with the Italian champions and has no intention to leave the Serie A club in the summer.
The 25-year-old midfielder has been in impressive form for Juventus, scoring 10 goals and managing eight assists in 31 league appearances this season. Vidal was linked with a £30m move to Old Trafford at the end of the season, with their arch-rivals Manchester City also interested in his services. However, the player insisted that things could change, despite being happy with Juventus.
"I'm content and I am not thinking about anything else. Obviously you never know what will happen in football, but I'm happy here. I have an excellent relationship with boss Antonio Conte. He's an exceptional person and an out of the ordinary coach," Vidal said.
"The fans also recognise my generosity. They have understood what I want to do on the pitch and they know that when I put on the Juventus shirt I play with my heart," he added.
Meanwhile, Vidal has stressed on several occasions that he wants to continue his services with his current employers. The midfielder played a crucial role in the Italian side's midfield and has now set his eyes on achieiveing more success with Juventus.
"I will stay here next season and (try to) win everything. I always aspire to improve as a player and here I have the confidence of the club and coach," talkSPORT quoted midfielder as saying.

"I thought that 1999 couldn't be beaten but you've beaten it today. Thank you for your fantastic support, we're proud of you and the players, a magnificent bunch of lads, and I hope we get to witness this many times again. Well done," Ferguson said.
"This is fantastic, I'm more pleased for you than anything else. To go through a 38-week programme of [Premier League football] and win it in style with a great bunch of players was great," the Scot added.
